the said order of the Honorable Court, stating the following
as basis thereof, to wit:

Entry of Appearance was submitted by Atty. M as the legal
representation of herein accused B;

has been the legal representation of accused B even at the
prosecutory level;
5. That when accused B submitted his Counter-Affidavit and
Motion to Dismiss both dated DECEMEBER 19, 2011, he
was already duly represented by Atty. M himself. Attached

been duly signed and conformed to by accused himself

Special Power of Attorney from the accused.
THE COURT:
From the two accused?

During arraignment Your Honor I
represented accused because B has no
lawyer Your Honor. He was about to be
arraigned. I represented him also during the
arraignment. For today, I believe I am only
representing A. I only represent accused B on
arraignment purposes only Your Honor.
